About Us

We are Scotland’s housing advice charity for disabled people, military veterans, and older people. We know how hard it can be to find a home that suits your needs if you or a family member have a disability, mobility problems, or specific needs. We’re here to help.

 

We were set up in 1997 to provide a unique public access service to all disabled people throughout Scotland. Today we advise on social renting, private renting, and home ownership.

 

We advise and support disabled people, veterans and older people through the complex design, financial and legal processes involved in buying or renting a property

 

We provide information, advice and training on housing and disability issues to the public, private and voluntary organisations.

 

We raise awareness of the housing problems our clients experience and highlight the solutions.

 

A dedicated team of former clients, our HOSmates, volunteer to support clients through the sometimes stressful process of finding the right home. They help us learn more about the housing problems disabled people, veterans and older people face.  We use their knowledge to achieve changes in policies and practice.

 

We have two housing options brokers: Susan and Olivia and Pedro is our Team Support Worker. You can find out more about them by clicking here . We also get help from Claire who deals with our Military Matters clients.

We have lots of other experts to help you with everything you might need including benefits advice, help with fundraising, and advice on equipment and adaptations.

Last year we helped 650 people to find “The Right Home, in the Right Place”

We would love to help you.
